Watch Website of International Consortium of Investigative Journalists Disappear From Baidu

On January 21, 2014, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists published an article on its web site entitled “Leaked Records Reveal Offshore Holdings of China’s Elite” (机密文件披露中国精英的海外资产). Some excerpts:
Close relatives of China’s top leaders have held secretive offshore companies in tax havens that helped shroud the Communist elite’s wealth, a leaked cache of documents reveals.

The confidential files include details of a real estate company co-owned by current President Xi Jinping’s brother-in-law and British Virgin Islands companies set up by former Premier Wen Jiabao’s son and also by his son-in-law.

美国一家独立新闻组织取得的机密档案和资料库显示,中国高层领导的近亲在加勒比海避税天堂持有隐秘的离岸公司,有助中共精英在海外隐藏巨额财富。

这些文件包括国家主席习近平的姐夫在海外与他人合伙的地产公司注册资料,以及前国务院总理温家宝的儿子、女婿注册的BVI(英属维尔京群岛)公司。
These screenshots show that, in the days following the report’s release, the ICIJ’s web site, www.icij.org, disappeared from Baidu’s search results.


The ICIJ’s files were published at http://offshoreleaks.icij.org. These screenshots show that on January 25, the last link to that site disappeared from Baidu.
